Program FAQs

As of September 1, 2015, the province of Ontario moved from a 1 year graduate entry Teacher Training program to an Enhanced 2 year qualification. This new requirement in this province outlines applicants must have a minimum 80 days of practice teaching within their initial teaching qualification.

Applicants who are certified in another province/territory will not be affected by the Enhanced Program requirements due to the Ontario Labour Mobility Act.

KOM attends the Ontario College of Teachers annual briefing for international teacher education program providers, and are extremely knowledgeable on the process of returning directly back to Ontario or through other Canadian provinces requiring 1 year qualifications.

Teachers College



As the leading resource of teacher training programs for Canadians, KOM Consultants are considered to be the experts for placements throughout Australia, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. Since 1991, KOM Consultants has supported thousands of Canadian students, from all regions of the country, to obtain their teacher training qualifications overseas.

Teacher Training Specializations:
Teacher training applicants may choose to specialize in Primary, Middle Years, or Secondary levels of teaching. Each division requires specific entry requirements. Teachable subjects are not required for Primary division although some jurisdictions may demand a spread of subjects in the undergraduate degree.

Secondary teachers are normally required to have two teaching methodologies: a Major and a Minor e.g. Math/English. The successful candidate must demonstrate subjects within his/her undergraduate degree to support the methodology/ies. Typically a major teaching methodology requires five full related subjects in the undergraduate degree and two or three full subjects for a minor teaching methodology.

Students apply directly online through KOM Consultants for all teacher training programs.
